We are looking at doing a road trip around California. Just yesterday we were about to book a fly drive with an holiday company but decided to wait to have a look and see if we could make it more personalised.
The things we want to do there is see Yosemite, Las Vegas, probably visit Universal Studio's, Grand Canyon and San Francisco and maybe San Diego (don't know why but i've always wanted to see San Diego Zoo!)
This is what was included in the pre organised fly drive as it was around some of the things we wanted to see but what I don't want to do is miss some amazing things just through lack of prep or knowledge.
So basically what I am asking advice for is..
Any recommendations on routes and what to see/do that include the above 'wishlist' ?
We are planning to go either Feb, March or April next year. We are both self employed so can go any time in these months. Would anyone recommend a month which is best?
Also the fly drive included flights from Scotland and hotels at each stop. I don't mind organising these separately but not sure if it would work out a lot more expensive?
W are planning to do it for 9/10 days max as we are having 4 nights stay in hawaii after it to visit family. Would you say that was enough time to see things and drive to places comfortably?
Thanks so much in advance for any advice!!
